Believe in Your Power of One: How Focusing on Your First Step Can Change Your Life!

Updated: Apr 9, 2022

Sometimes, we give up on our goals, our dreams. But when this happens, what we are really giving up on is ourselves.

We’ve all done it at some point. Sometimes you think the goal is too big, too grand for you. Maybe you feel like it’s too hard. Sometimes you give up because the people around you didn’t believe you could do it.

Maybe you’ve tried over and over again: different programs, different schools, different diets, etc. But you’ve always ended up with little or no success. Sometimes, you think that you’ll never make a difference, you’ll never figure it out.

Put a pin in that and stick with me for a moment… we’re going to come back to this in just a second.

Last week, I was having a chat with my friend, and we were talking about the power of one. Did you know it’s the most powerful number?

See, the #1 might be small, but everything starts with 1. You are just 1 person, but you have the capacity to change EVERYTHING. You have the power to change your world!

Oftentimes, we feel powerless because we’re only 1 person. But 1 is all you need: 1 apology to mend a broken heart, 1 cure that heals a diseased nation, 1 post that helps someone make a better choice, 1 action that keeps someone from taking their own life. All of it lies in the power of 1. And that means that you, as 1 person, have that same awesome power.

I said that you have the capacity to change your world- and I mean that with all my heart. And the secret to changing your world lies in the power of 1. One has the ability to CHANGE EVERYTHING if you let it.

So, let’s go back to your dreams, your goals, and the desires you have inside of yourself. Let’s go back to where we started this conversation.

YOU have the POWER of ONE. YOU, too, can MAKE A CHANGE. YOU can CHANGE your WORLD, but only if you harness the POWER of ONE.

And here’s the secret: The Power of One is focusing on ONE step at a time.

Don’t believe me just yet??? Hang in there... let's see if I can convince you.

The Power of One means placing your focus, energy, and efforts on that very first step. Then focus on the next step and the next step after that. No matter how big the goal, focus on ONE step at a time. That's the Power of One!

No matter what your goal or dream is, YOU CAN do it! But you’ll only do it if you BELIEVE in your own awesome POWER of ONE.

Everything is accomplished through the Power of One no matter what your goal is!

Millions are made $1 at a time…

Weight is lost 1 lbs at a time…

Friendships are developed 1 moment at a time…

Your body is nourished 1 bite at a time…

Lives are saved 1 vaccine at a time…

Human beings are birthed 1 child at a time…

Homes are built one nail at a time…

Journeys are traveled 1 mile at a time...

Muscles are built 1 workout at a time...

YOU achieve YOUR goals 1 step at a time…

You CAN do this! Just stay focused on that ONE step and TAKE IT. Then focus on the next step and the next step after that, all the way to the finish line.

If you’ve been following my posts on Facebook or Instagram, then you know all my clients achieved their goals by focusing ONE STEP at a time. Each week we build on that success, compounding it, multiplying it, all the way to a successful finish. If they can do it, you can do it! If I can do it, you sure as hell can do it too!

So, BELIEVE in your own POWER of ONE! And take that first step. Forget about the past, get the support you need, and take that first awesome step towards your future.

And remember, never forget to BELIEVE in YOUR POWER of ONE!

If you’re ready to take your first step, but are struggling to BELIEVE in your POWER of ONE or don’t even know what your ONE STEP should be, then send me a message. Many of my clients come in because they get lost on their journey to success OR they feel completely overwhelmed by everything they have to do to meet their goals. That's were having a coach can make all the difference.

I can help you change your mindset, apply the skills you need to be successful, and support you all the way to the finish line. You can definitely succeed this time! Send me a message and we can talk about how to harness your awesome power of one all the way to a successful end.
